Turquoise Cabochon Southwestern Bead Embroidery Bib Pendant on Front Closing 20 Inch Rope
I made this piece using purple ultra suede as a base. I added the cabochons and the beads, attached an ultra suede back, then trimmed using the picot stitch. I attached the rope I beaded using lilac twin beads and turquoise bugle beads. I attached a turquoise colored beaded bezel lilac stone for its clasp and made a loop to hold it. The beaded breast plate is 7 1/2 inches wide and 6 inches high including the fringe. The rope measures 20 inches and is 26 inches total. The rope can be shortened if desired. I used Lilac colored seed beads and a lilac glass stone, Genuine Greenish Turquoise cabochons Dyed Cabochons to match turquoise and pink Swarovski crystals. I used burgundy beads for trim and attached sterling silver bear claws for luck and large sterling silver beads fringe trim.
